When I turned on the computer all fans turned on and led lights on the front of the case, there was no display or beeps to indicate anything wrong.
I opened up the case and noted that all cables where in place and the hard drive was running.
I tested the vga cable and monitor on my laptop and they worked fine.
DVD rom works fine.
So I disconnected all devices, hdd, dvd rom and pci card. The mobo has on board graphics. I reseated the ram modules, took them out, tried booting with one module etc. I noticed that the usual long beeps happen when I boot with no ram modules. Does this indicate that the mobo and cpu are fine?
I reseated the cpu, but did notice that the cpu did not heat up as expected after 5 seconds of powering up. I had my finger on the cpu, normally I thought I would be going to hospital with third degree burns ?
I had a device yeaturday, mobo analyser, but I dont know how it works and think its bad and Im sending it back to get a refund. Could this has caused a problem. It usb powered and not the older pci slot ones.
You can also use the printer port to run the mobo anaylser but, there was no power when I did this. Obviously the printer port has no power. I dont understand though, three month ago the computer was running fine.
It as e system, celeron d, with 2 gb of ram and a foxcon mobo.
